While Teddy Bridgewater is technically a game time decision, Adam Schefter is reporting that the “signs point to him (Bridgewater) not playing tonight.” Which means that there’s a 50% chance that he’s playing, while there’s a 100% chance that Christian Ponder might play. THE SUSPENSE EVERYONE. Suffering a high ankle sprain in last Sunday’s surprising win against Atlanta (41-28), Bridgewater was held out of practice all week. Seeing as how this is the same injury that’s been ailing Jamaal Charles, I expect nothing less than three touchdowns and 90 rushing yards from the Minnesota quarterback tonight. But, if Ponder starts (UPDATE: Ian Rapoport has now confirmed that Ponder will be starting), that should be just as exciting. And by exciting, I mean like how watching two cars crash into each other is exciting. Remember, the Vikings are facing a Packers team fresh off a game against the Bears where they ended every single drive with at least a field goal attempt. Adding the cherry on top, the forecast is calling for a torrential rain storm that we haven’t seen the likes of since Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. So… should be derptastic fun for all folks…
Note: I’ll be doing Corona for the beer portion, and Jameson for the shots portion.
Take one sip of beer if…
The word “switch” is mentioned in any context.
Christian Ponder whiffs on an open receiver.
At any time, you actually miss Mike Mayock (pretty much any time Phil Simms opens his mouth)… take baby sips.
Eddie Lacy should have gotten the ball instead of whoever did.
Mike McCarthy calls a completely stupid run play.
Take one shot of liquor if…
Christian Ponder looks totally confused about life.
They show a close up of Clay Matthews hair.
There is any mention of Brett Favre.
Totally Legitmate Game Prediction
Vikings – Hold on, I’m pondering it.
Packers – 18 (inches, the amount of rain expected tonight.)
